I admit, it's not as unique a color combination as many others that have posted here, but it's a matter of preference. I like things to be straight, modern, understated. This color/material combination hits all of that right there.

As I've been testdriving the E60 for a few hours before nailing the order, there haven't been too many surprises in the 550kms that went down the (quad) pipes since yesterday. But there are so many subtle things you only start to notice on second/third sight such as the door entry lights mounted below the mirrors, the practical boxes in the trunk, or the massively adjustable seats (although I didn't get the multi-function seats).

Anyways, it's an amazing car (that said, coming from an RS6 sedan), even keeping the revs below 5.500rpms. Good job, BMW!

PS: High res pictures (7M) available, PM me. Fleet pictures to follow.

If the ring taxi doesn't need one, I don't need one either *cough*

Congratulations! Great pictures. I think it's the best color available w/o individual. Did you get the full leather or extended?

Yeah, I'm happy I don't have to press a button to start rumbling.. it's extended, I was being cheap with the full option.

Yup - the production B5s all came too late for that - at least mine has Comfort Access added - it's a pity the starter button is so butt ugly - if they're going to have it, it should at least be a tactile delight - witness Aston Martin's implementation... personally, I'd like something that doesn't feel like plastic - something solid, but in any case with a decent real aluminium surround.

Might have to customise that part, after the fact...

Congratulations - you'll love living with silver grey - a very easy colour to maintain and a classic as well - enjoy!

Best regards,

It lights up when you use the key to remotely unlock your car.
